Kevin Murphy Hair Color Ingredient Spotlight: Pomegranate

We are SO in love with the Kevin Murphy hair color line and so are our SK Enthusiasts! They love how soft their hair feels, they love the depth and dimension of the Kevin Murphy color, they love the smell (yes, Kevin Murphy color actually smells GOOD because it has good things in it!).

We wanted to share a little about some of the ingredients in the Kevin Murphy color line. One of them is pomegranate. Pomegranate is known for it’s anti-inflammatory effects as well as for being a strong antioxidant and therefore anti-aging. As such, it’s the perfect ingredient to include in the Kevin Murphy color line!

According to wikipedia, the name pomegranate derives from medieval Latin pōmum “apple” and grānātum “seeded”. Possibly stemming from the old French word for the fruit, pomme-grenade, the pomegranate was known in early English as “apple of Grenada”—a term which today survives only in heraldic blazons.

The pomegranate juice in Kevin Murphy hair color comes from Turkey, Iran and Israel, and the extraction and concentration process is done in Italy. Most often seen in hand creams and lotions, Pomegranate is used as an invigorating and awakening agent for the hair and skin. In Kevin Murphy color, the Pomegranate works together with Honey, Shea Butter, Rose Hip and Aloe Vera to protect the integrity of your hair and ensure long-lasting color results!

Ingredient Spotlight: Immortelle

YoungAgain

Did you know there is perennial called Immortelle, or Helichrysum Stoechas, that is rich in antioxidants? Our Kevin Murphy YOUNG.AGAIN line uses extract of the Immortelle flower to help restore youthful vitality to your hair that we lose as we age. Helichrysum means ‘sun gold’ in Latin, and is a perfect description of this beautifully vibrant, yellow-gold flower that is strong enough to survive the common drought and strong winds found in the mountains of Portugal and Spain where Immortelle thrives.

Immortelle

Immortelle, along with Burdock Root Extract, Safflower Seed Oil, and Sugar Cane Extract are used in YOUNG.AGAIN to protect your hair from damage and to restore vitality. And, the Immortelle used in YOUNG.AGAIN is certified organic! Learn more at LoveKevinMurphy.

Ingredient Spotlight: Angelica Root Extract

ANGEL.RINSE_ We were reading a recent Kevin Murphy blog post about one Angelica Root Extract, which is used in the aptly named Angel Rinse. We #lovekm and wanted to share some of the fun facts about this ancient and beneficial ingredient with our SK Enthusiasts!

Angelica-botanical-2Angelica, also known as Garden Angelica, Archangel, Root of the Holy Ghost and The Angel’s Herb, contains a plethora of rich vitamins and minerals such as B12, Iron, and Thiamin, among others. It’s believed that Angelica is a native plant of Syria and several cooler European and Asian climates, but it is also occasionally found in cold, moist climates such as Scotland, Lapland and Iceland. Angelica Root has many medicinal qualities and has been a respected herb for thousands of years. Angelica Root received it’s name as it blooms around the feast day of St. Michael the Archangel, and as such, is often planted in monasteries.

The blend of Angelica Root Extract along with Mango Seed Butter, Cocoa Butter and Tangerine Peel Oil create a weightless conditioner that not only nourishes your scalp, but feeds your hair with amazing, non GMO goodness.
